Robert Pattinson Twitter Shy Actor Talks Life Shaking 'Twilight' Cast Character Edward Cullen Following Kristen Stewart Split, 'The Rover' Star Admits 'Confidence Issues' After Cheating Scandal

Robert Pattinson has managed to achieve plenty of fame and success during his time in Hollywood. However, the British actor knows that his accomplishments come with a price and he recently admitted that he is still finding his footing in a world that still views him as Edward Cullen.

According to Just Jared, the 28-year-old chatted with Buzzfeed about his career thus far up and his level of confidence.  As far as finding himself the actor revealed, "In some ways, hopefully not."

Robert Pattinson added, "The only thing I deal with every single job is trying to overcome confidence issues. I think in some ways, it's helped me just having fallen into it, and not really being, like, I need this."

Kristen Stewart's ex-boyfriend continued, "That's when you go crazy and you lose control of your personal life.

"In some ways, it is very frustrating when I'll know how to do something in my head, and something inhibits it. It just drives me nuts. I think it's good when there's no expectations of the character. And then I'm fine."

Pattinson went on to say, "It's the most horrible thing ever. Especially because most of the time, especially in big emotional scenes, it's just because you feel like you're faking it. And you know how not to fake it, but it's not happening in your body.

"And there's nothing you can do. At the end of the day, people watching it half the time can't tell at all. Or 90% of the time, you can watch a scene you think is the worst scene ever and you're completely faking it - and no one knows."

Despite his major success portraying Edward Cullen, Robert Pattinson admitted that there were negatives that came with his fame and fortune.

"The Rover star told The Daily Beast, "But I've always thought that nothing comes for free. You get paid a bunch of money. You get a bunch of opportunities. And you've got to pay for it somehow.

"And in my case, I paid for it by having to figure out how to walk down the street [without getting mobbed]. I paid for it by people thinking I was one thing. That's my major desire as an actor - to have no one know who I am. To have no preconceptions."

Katy Perry's good friend continued, "So obviously when a character becomes iconic, you have to deal with the baggage that comes with it."
